In the last decade, advancements in telemetry technology have enabled scientists to answer questions about the ecology of fishes in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta that can be used to inform the management of flow and habitat in the Delta. This symposium provides a forum where researchers and managers will discuss the results of studies that use telemetric technology, work through challenges, and provide insights into future study designs that can best inform Delta management.
The symposium format will cover session topics including:
- Using acoustic telemetry to inform water management in the Delta
- Behavior of pisciviores in the Delta with implications for special status prey species
- Using telemetry to elucidate behavior in wetland habitats: Implications for enhancement/restoration
- Sturgeon behavior and ecology
- Survival and behavior of salmonids upstream of the Delta
The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
